The movement of Youth for Christ began in the 1940’s. In the beginning it began in large rallies in places like Soldiers field in Chicago and our founders were young servicemen returning from WWII. Well we are excited to again be in partnership with military Chaplains on behalf of young single service men and women. This unique partnership is a focused effort to share the Gospel with military members and offer be a part of offering them hope of Jesus Christ. In our SAM’s ministry we use the same strategies that have guided Youth for Christ for over 60 years. Our commitment is “Geared to the Times, Anchored to the Rock” and we are proud to serve the US military.
In the 1980s, Youth for Christ, Young Life, Parents and Military Chaplains, came together in partnership to, establish Military Community Youth Ministries (MCYM) — which is also known as "Club Beyond." This unique partnership is a focused effort to share the Gospel with military kids and offer the hope of Jesus Christ. In Club Beyond we use the same strategies that have guided Youth for Christ for over 60 years. Youth for Christ Military extends the vision to reach every kid by stepping into the ever-changing lives of military brats.
